London Garden Designer

Welcome to London Garden Designer, a friendly, personalised garden design company set up by qualified and experienced garden designer Sara Jane Rothwell.

The London based design practice was established in 2002, where our portfolio of work ranges from small domestic London courtyards, roof terraces and gardens, to full-scale rural landscapes throughout the Uk and Europe. We also collaborate regularly with property developers and architects to produce Landscape plans for large scale developments and new builds. We pride ourselves on the good working relationships we establish and maintain with our clients.

With an emphasis on quality and detail, here at London Garden Designer we work with you to create a distinctive, imaginative yet practical garden to suit your needs and budget, listening carefully to your requirements, ideas and wishes. The distinctive style of our gardens is very much reflective of our close working relationship with the client, ranging from classic to contemporary.

We work with a select group of landscape contractors who carry out our design specifications to a very high standard. All the plants are sourced from specialist nurseries whose quality is assured and for a more instant effect we can bring in mature specimens. Our intention is to ensure a smooth and seamless process through from the initial design concept to the final completion of the garden build.

Indoor Planting on a Grand Scale

During the summer, we had the chance to work again with D&D London who own some of the most exciting restaurants, bars and hotels in the capital. The Blue Bird Restaurant in Chelsea, was undergoing a massive refurbishment , for which we were asked to propose a fresh new design that would include mature indoor trees as well as an English country side feel within the dining area. This was quite a logistical challenge and an exciting introduction to indoor planting on a massive scale ! Four months later, the place is open again and looks fabulous. The atmosphere created by the nine superb trees Bucida buceras (one is almost 6m tall!), the ferns, grasses and other low planting is dramatic but enchanting. The experience has given us the taste for similar projects, in realizing the impact that greenery can have indoors when implemented realistically. We are currently finishing the planting for a Michelin Star restaurant as well as a Secret Garden at the South Place Hotel in Moorgate, Central London, plus 2 other new restaurants for D & D in London and Leeds, to be opened in the New Year.

Of course our domestic projects continue to be some of our favourites. One of these is a large garden in Hampstead, with an interesting water feature that will keep our landscapers busy up until Christmas.
